Snail Mail! That is how sloooow it goes to the USA, and expensive postage too!

Hello all,

Just joined this last week of September. I’ve been taking a vacation from mail art but need to send out some Snail Mail art post cards! So glad to be here after a long summer in dry hot northern Minnesota!

Look soon at your mail address for some snail mail from me!
